What is different about Stryd Duo?
Stryd Duo is a dual-sided motion capture system and power meter, composed of two Next Gen Stryd power meters that wirelessly connect and work in concert together to measure high-resolution bilateral running movements and report real-time balance metrics.
Your runs are all captured with millimeter and millisecond precision through the use of two Next Gen Stryd pods, which stay connected wirelessly throughout your run to share and analyze high-resolution left and right foot movements, as well as report new balance metrics.
Our advanced motion-processing algorithms and real-time wireless pod synchronization technology gives you meaningful second-by-second balance insights while running and incredibly informative multi-view step-by-step visualizations post-run.
I already use the Next Gen Stryd, can I simply add a second to create Stryd Duo?
Yes! Since Stryd Duo consists of two Next Gen Stryd pods, we have made it easy and accessible for current Next Gen Stryd users to simply and quickly create their own Stryd Duo system, or start with a single Stryd pod, and add another single pod at a later point to create the Duo system when the time is right for you.
Here’s how: Add a second Next Gen Stryd pod, pair the two together with your existing Next Gen Stryd in the new Stryd mobile app, and in minutes you can start running with your new Stryd Duo! Don’t have a Next Gen Stryd pod yet? Get the Stryd Duo system, which comes with both pods from the start, ready to go.
What do I get with Stryd Duo?
Stryd Duo delivers new biomechanical metrics tracking the differences between the left and right side of your body. These new “balance” metrics are being delivered with leading, Stryd-fidelity for the first time, allowing you to track your trends over time to learn more about your running progression and to understand quantitatively what works best for you.
Here are the new second-by-second metrics Stryd Duo will report:
- Ground Contact Time Balance
- Vertical Ratio
- Vertical Oscillation Balance
- Leg Spring Stiffness Balance
- Impact Loading Rate Balance
Stryd Duo also comes with additional accuracy benefits over the Next Gen Stryd, such as increased data stability without sacrificing responsiveness for existing Stryd power metrics, such as Stryd Power, Form Power and Air Power.
